Name edit

Platycaelus Blanchard, 1843: pl. 2, fig 10 (as 'Platycaelus') 1853: 25

Type species: Platycaelus depressus Blanchard, [1843] (monotypy)

Nomenclatural note: "Bousquet (2002) overturned the spelling that was uniformly in use Platycoelus, to Platycaelus, based on what appears in the plate caption initially published by Blanchard (1843, see Emberson 1993). However, Bousquet's action was contrary to the 2000 Code ( ICZN1999), which states explicitly: " when an unjustified emendation is in prevailing usage and is attributed to the original author and date it is deemed to be a justified emendation." Therefore Platycoelus, as of the year 2000, was and remains the correct Codecompliant spelling as found in the catalogs by Lorenz (1998, 2005 ). Subsequent publications that used Platycaelus (Will & Kavanaugh 2012; Will 2011) following the spelling used by Bousquet (2002), are incorrect." [cited from Will, 2015, see Plazi: 6B7C7B58-FFAC-FFB2-FF3C-CDFEC98AFCD0].
